Exclusive: Trestle Bowl by Zoe Mowat for OTHR

Introducing our latest OTHR exclusive preview: the minimal, sculptural Trestle Bowl by Montreal-based designer Zoë Mowat, crafted in 3D printed porcelain. Trestle was created to house jewelry, keys, and other small yet significant objects, and is available in two sizes: Short and Tall.

The porcelain bowl’s form originated from the exploration of positive and negative space. Its seamless connections are possible only through 3D printing; in the words of the designer, “Quite simply, I wanted to make something float.”

The clean connection of the handle to the vessel is a feature only possible with the 3D printing method.

The Trestle Bowl’s flat handle, ideal for hanging drop earrings or draping jewelry, appears to be suspended on the edge of its surface.

Based in Montreal, Canada, Zoë operates her eponymous studio. Her sculptural and intuitive approach to furniture and objects allows her to explore color, material, form and texture. This is counterbalanced by a curiosity and desire to create functional objects that can endure. She currently teaches at University of Oregon.
